Why Upgrade Your Thermostats

Your thermostats control when your air conditioning system operates and for how long it runs. This is a very important job which is why replacing your thermostats is a great way to potentially help your AC system. Here are a few ways that new thermostats could help.

  • Accurate temperature control – With digital thermostats you can set the temperature of your home more precisely. Not only is it more precise, but it is very easy. Digital thermostats feature bright display panels and big buttons that are easy to use.
  • More control –  When it comes to controlling exactly when your AC operates programmable thermostats and wifi-enabled thermostats are unparalleled. With programmable thermostats, you can set your AC to turn off when you leave for work in the morning and then to turn on 30 minutes before you get home so that your house is nice and comfortable. You can also set it to stay off for an extended period of time if you leave for vacation. With wifi-thermostats, you can actually access your thermostats from anywhere with an internet connection. If you forget to turn off your AC when you leave for work you can access you thermostats from your smart phone or from your work computer to turn it off. This is also idea for people who have vacation rentals.
  • Heat pump thermostats – If you have heat pump in your home or if you’ve recently installed a heat pump then you’ll need to make sure that you have the right thermostats. Heat pumps need to have specific controls that are designed specifically for them because of the unique way in which they work.
